K–8 Admissions

The Academy for Global Citizenship is an open enrollment, free public charter school for students living within the City of Chicago limits. As a charter school, enrollment is based on an annual lottery. There is a sibling clause, which automatically enrolls the younger sibling of current students as long as they have applied or are on a current waitlist.

The Intent to Enroll form must be completed and a current student registration form must be completed by March 1st for the following school year you wish to participate in the Academy for Global Citizenship's lottery. However, applications are accepted all through the year for our waitlist. If you have any questions regarding admissions, please email admissions@agcchicago.org.

We particularly encourage families in LeClaire Courts, Sleepy Hollow, Vittum Park, West Elsdon, and Archer Heights to apply. However, there is no neighborhood boundary or preference given based on residential area.
